Gearing up: it’s what the best action-movie heroes do when it’s time to kick ass and take names. Here’s a supercut that shows film’s finest suiting up for a showdown, just in time to pump us up for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. A variety of genres are represented, including scenes from horror and sci-fi cinema, but these characters all have one thing in common: they’re ready for action.
We get a peek at the impending Grand Guignol bloodfest in Army of Darkness, the scene where Silence of the Lambs’ Jame Gumb (Ted Levine) puts on his warpaint (OK fine, makeup and lady-skin suit), Will Smith sliding on his sunglasses in Men in Black, and more. Play, watch and repeat on those days you need a little ass-kicking inspiration.
